DJ ASH-S! has established a solid reputation as a house DJ in the Christchurch club scene and has played gigs in virtually every club in town. He is well known for his high energy electro house sets and equally for his deep and chill house sessions.
Ash-S! started DJing with a set of cassette decks and a walkman to cue, back in 1988 in Wellington, then moving to the Auckland DJ scene. Times have changed since 1988 and these days Ash uses the latest in DJ technology, but being an old school DJ, still does his mixing live on 3 CDJs. No software, no computers, just live, on the fly mixing and mashing.
A multi genre DJ, Ash-S! is passionate about House music and all its branches. In his 2 hour show he presents a sweet mix of classic and current house and tech house tunes for the first 1.5 hours followed by half an hour of whatever genre takes his fancy.
More recently DJ ASH-S! has started producing his own tunes under the artist name “Ash Summers”. He has released his first Future House track on Beatport, iTunes, Spotify, etc and is busy working on more releases.
You can catch him in various clubs around town in the weekends or every other Saturday afternoon from midday on House Trained, exclusively at Pulzar FM.
